Ana Coito, Ph.D.



I’m Dr. Ana Coito, the founder of Brain Choices.

I have been very passionate about neuroscience and healthy lifestyle for a long time. I’ve always found our brain so fascinating and I wanted to learn more about it. This is what brought me to want to do Ph.D. in Neuroscience. After going through some health issues, I got also very interested in healthy lifestyle, especially nutrition. I started studying by myself about this and the more I got informed, the more I found this field so fascinating. After finishing my Ph.D. I did a CAS in Nutrition at the ETH Zürich. I wanted to be able t apply all this information to actually help people. Thus, afterwards, I underwent Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching course.

Thousands of scientific studies have shown that food and other lifestyle choices can have a huge impact on our brain health. And brain health is such an important topic! If our brain is not well, we don’t feel well.

In Brain Choices I combine my knowledge in both fields – neuroscience and nutrition & lifestyle – to provide you with evidence-based information on the best strategies to naturally protect and optimize your brain health. I also offer personalized help. You can learn more about my Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching here.

I hold a PhD in Neuroscience, a CAS in Nutrition and I’m a certified
Nutrition & Lifestyle coach, among other degrees (see below). I’m
also the author of over 20 scientific publications.
